Meet Your Local Foresters:
Education: UMASS Amherst Bachelor’s degree in urban forestry
Experience: 46 years working in the tree care industry, 26 years as a Certified Arborist
Interests: Hiking, Canoeing, Skiing
Favorite Tree & Reason: Hop Hornbeam (Ostrya virginiana) I think it is a nicely shaped native tree that can be used in the selected areas and as an understory tree which has interesting bark and is under-utilized in the industry.
